"Monsters don't exist!"

8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Goodies save a man who is about to throw himself off a bridge. He is the keeper of the Monster House at the London Zoo, and is depressed because he doesn't have a monster to exhibit. So the Goodies set off for Scotland to capture the Loch Ness Monster...

An enjoyably daft start to the second season. Scotland as seen here is a land of tartan kilts, bagpipe spiders, Andy Stewart, haggis hunting, road signs that say 'Och Aye The Noo' and sporrans that drink milk and make mewling noises. In other words, one that has only existed in the fevered imaginations of comedy writers. ( Wales would come in for a similar ribbing in Season Five ).

Stanley Baxter was under contract to the B.B.C. when he made this, but his performance is so close to John Laurie's you wonder why they didn't hire the real one. 'Carry On' star Bernard Bresslaw appears as the zoo keeper.

Funniest moment - the Goodies towing the Loch Ness Monster back to London!
